Neal Krawetz (Dr): You are what you type: No classical computer forensics

Black Hat Briefings, Las Vegas 2006 [Audio] Presentations from the security conference

"In an online world, anonymity seems easy. Network addresses can be cloaked and files can be manipulated. People rapidly change virtual names, genders, and skills. But even with these precautions, anti-anonymity techniques can track people. Habitual patterns and learned skills are subtle, appearing in everything we type. This presentation discusses profiling methods for identifying online people and breaching anonymity. The topics covered include methods to identify skillsets, nationality, gender, and even physical attributes. Dr. Neal Krawetz has a Ph.D. in Computer Science and over 15 years of computer security experience. His research focuses on methods to track "anonymous" people online, with an emphasis on anti-spam and anti-anonymity technologies. Dr. Krawetz runs Hacker Factor Solutions, a company dedicated to security-oriented auditing, research, and solutions. He is the author of "Introduction to Network Security" (Charles River Media, 2006)."

Black Hat Briefings, USA 2007 [Audio] Presentations from the security conference.

Digital cameras and video software have made it easier than ever to create high quality pictures and movies. Services such as MySpace, Google Video, and Flickr make it trivial to distribute pictures, and many are picked up by the mass media. However, there is a problem: how can you tell if a video or picture is showing something real? Is it computer generated or modified? In a world where pictures are more influencial than words, being able to distinguish fact from fiction in a systematic way becomes essential. This talk covers some common and not-so-common forensic methods for extracting information from digital images. You will not only be able to distinguish real images from computer generated ones, but also identify how they were created.
